Mission 2019 Vitamin Campaign

The children suffer greatly from the developmental effects of poor nutrition. Children’s vitamins are expensive and hard to obtain in Peru. Less than $9 provides 320 “gummies” to help toddlers develop properly. Donations of any amount would be appreciated. Envelopes can be found on the bulletin board in the vestibule of the Church.
